Discarded computer tablets found

News Release

File Number: 18-1043

On March 5, 2018 Trail and Greater District RCMP recovered computer tablets.

Police were called by a concerned citizen who located four electronic devices (tablets) that were partially buried in the snow in East Trail. The tablets are from different manufacturers and are different sizes and the complainant felt that they may be stolen.

Due to the amount of battery life left in some of the devices, police feel that the devices were not left in the snow for very long, however, there are no recent reports of the theft of any of these types of devices.

If you have any information regarding this incident or have had one of these types of devices go missing, please contact the Trail RCMP at 250-364-2566.

Thank you,

Fake US Currency circulating around Trail

Trail RCMP have recovered counterfeit US bills from several businesses and banks around the City. $1, $10, $20 and $50 US bills have been passed at several businesses within the last week.

The bills are slightly smaller, have poor colouring and do not feel like real currency paper.

Security features such as security thread, watermarks, and colour shifting numbers are not present on these fake bills. Several Trail residents have been identified making purchases with the fake bills. Police are investigating.

Trail RCMP ask the public to be extra diligent when accepting US cash and notify the detachment at 250-364-2566 if someone tries to use this counterfeit currency.
